Re: OpenEVSE Charging Station any Users?

Bump.

Forum searches for OpenEVSE show these members jonescg, doggy, brunohill, reecho, and seem to indicate possible assembly, use or ownership of an OpenEVSE charge station.

I would appreciate any feedback on these type2 capable chargers.

Almost all the content about setting up the AVASS cells is on the Cell Mates facebook group. I'd suggest asking your question there.
David have you got a link? I can only see the prison cellmates facebook groups.
